What's the appeal of playing as a hand with a gun?

They appeal to people with short attention spans, people who lose interest if they aren't shooting at something within 60 seconds.

You don't understand the appeal of killing? Why are you even here then?

Don't tell me it's to figure out the appeal of killing. That's either something inherent, or something nature forgot to install.

Yeah, it is weird playing as hand with no body carrying a a gun.

Now a head with no body carrying a gun and shooting things would be something to see:

Sooooo........what are all these first person shooter games being released only on the 360 and not other platforms?

Also, does TC not understand the first person viewpoint and why does he assume first person equals violent guns?

To try and answer his question: violent content has NOTHING to do with the viewpoint. There's just as many "killing everything that walks" type 3rd person games if not more (actually, there's probably much more 3rd person than 1st person, I'm not going to bother checking it).

Also, some people prefer being the character over watching their character.
